“If adapting the tale of the 1952 SS Pendleton rescue – in which officers in the Coast Guard rescued the crew of the SS Pendleton and the SS Mercer off the coast of Massachusetts during a vicious nor’easter – for the movies sounds like a no-brainer, that’s because it was: when Casey Sherman, author of the 2009 nonfiction chronicle of the same name, presented producer Dorothy Aufiero with a copy of his book, she knew she had something special on her hands almost immediately. It just took some persuading from Sherman, not to mention Aufiero’s due diligence.” (Via Screen Rant.)
